What has become of our children’s schools nowadays? Gang fights, theft, extortions, sexual assaults are reported within the school compound everywhere and it is dangerously growing out of proportion. I heard from my daughter recently a teacher was assaulted by an outsider while in the school compound, the school this teacher teaches is just next door to our condominium. Where were the securities? Who is responsible for the safety of our children when they are at school?
Star 13 Feb 2009 KLANG: Teachers and students at a secondary school in Kapar had the scare of their lives when an armed man stormed into the school and stabbed a student.
Klang OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Mat Yusop said the incident occurred a few minutes after the morning session ended at 1pm.
He said the man, who was wearing a crash helmet, entered the school compound with a knife in his hand.
A female teacher tried to stop him but he quickly walked up to a group of students and stabbed one of them in the arm and thigh, he added. The assailant then walked out of the school compound and slashed three more students who were waiting to go home.
The three students, however, suffered only minor injuries. All the victims were aged between 14 and 15. The four students were rushed to the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital here for treatment. The student who was stabbed was admitted while the others were given outpatient treatment. ACP Mohamad said police believed it was a revenge attack following a gang fight between two groups of students on Tuesday.
The assailant, believed to be a former student, is still at large.
